Well, last week was a flop. Why does this always happen when it’s the Computer Room Fly Zone, when I have the most work to do? Mr Monkey caught a bad cold/cough from his workmate on the Friday before and then by the Tuesday both Lily and I had it. It zapped me of all my energy and made Lily clingy and sooky. I spent Thursday on the couch and although I was feeling better on Friday and planned to at least wash the pile of dishes that had accumulated, Lily made that exceptionally hard. She decieded that she wasn’t going to leave my arms at all and was fine with spending the whole day on my lap on the couch in front of the TV. The only time she moved was when I took her upstairs to eat lunch and dinner. Even when she was asleep I wasn’t allowed to move because as soon as I did she would wake up and scream. But what could I do? I knew how horrible I was feeling so I could only imagine how horrible she was feeling.
Thankfully my wonderful parents came up on Saturday and my Dad washed the mountain of dishes while Mum vacuumed the computer room and helped me try to wrangle Lily in to some clothes while I got ready. We then went to the pub for lunch and then to the playground for a quick play and it was fantastic to just get out of the house. Sunday was Fathers Day so not much got done. I managed to get a tiny part of the filing done but will probably try to keep working on it over the following weeks.
So, here’s what I’m going to do this week:
- Sweep floor
- Scrub stove top
- Clean cupboard doors
- Clean out fridge
- Clean small appliances
- Clean big appliances (outside of fridge etc)
- Mop floor
Do you have a plan for this week? Are you working in the kitchen too? Let me know what you have planned in the comments below.
